It takes about 20 minutes for your original files to go live, and several hours for us to create derived files (like mp3s).

It also takes several hours for your item to appear in the search engine - and the search engine is what makes it appear on the band's collection page.

So the show goes live immediately, but it takes a few hours for others to be able to find it.

At the bottom of the metadata page, where you input all the song titles and stuff, just above the submit button there's a section called "Derivation options" that allows you to choose whether you'd like to to have lossies made. We recommend that you allow it, because then people can "preview" the concert in the flash player before deciding whether they'd like to spend the time to download the whole show in lossless format. That takes a really long time for most people.

But, if you'd really prefer it, you can choose one of the "don't make lossies" choices.

(If you've already submitted this page, then we've already started creating the lossies. We can take them back out afterward, if you'd like.)
